job description

Our client is a reputed industry leader in their domain of expertise.

With some massive undertakings underway, they are currently seeking the services of an Applications Enterprise Architect to join their team as they seek to move from a whole lot of applications in a consolidated manner from current state to target state.

Key Aspects related to the role will include:

  • Formulating a list of the key business applications in the current technology environment
  • Reviewing each of these applications and setting out a recommendation as to what should happen to that (i.e. retired, maintained, extended, transitioned, etc)
  • Defining an initial target state application portfolio based on the recommendations.

Challenges

  • Completeness and level of information available on the current applications, which may require further data gathering across the organisation
  • Determining an intuitive and clear way of structuring the roadmap so it can be understood by technology and business leadership
  • Determining the best way to segment and analyse applications for the purposes of developing the road maps
  • Determining the sequencing and timing of retiring or transitioning applications, which will require consultation with business/technical SMEs - availability, differing perspective, etc
  • Avoiding getting caught in too much technical detail especially given the technical nature of many of the personnel that might need to provide information - scope / structure / level of detail will be important in this regard.

Prior experience

  • More than 8yrs experience in Enterprise / application architecture
  • Application portfolio / application lifecycle analysis / application portfolio strategy
  • Strategic roadmap development (applications / platforms)
  • Strong stakeholder engagement and consultation skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong workshop design and facilitation skills
  • Insurance / FSI background would be helpful given most of the current apps are in that space
  • Ability to gather multiple, potentially differing perspectives and to reconcile this to a recommended outcome(s)
  • Complex problem solving and analysis

If you like the sound of this opportunity and are up for a challenge, then please do send through a coverletter addressing the above mentioned points along with your resume in MS Word and click on the “Apply Now” tab.
